Europe criticizes Israel over legislation on terrorism


Arutz Sheva: “This week, the Israeli Knesset adopted legislation which empowers the Israeli Minister of Interior to revoke the permanent residency status of persons involved in terrorism, treason or espionage,” the statement said.

While the EU stressed it “rejects terrorism in all its forms”, it warned that “the new law could make the residency status of Palestinians in East Jerusalem, a protected population under International Humanitarian Law, even more precarious than it already is today. The new law could be used to further compromise the Palestinian presence in East Jerusalem, which would further undermine the prospects of a two-state solution.”

“In line with international law, the European Union does not recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the territories occupied by Israel since June 1967, including East Jerusalem, and does not consider them to be part of Israel’s territory, irrespective of their legal status under domestic Israeli law,” it said. more …

Opinion: As radio talk show host Dennis Prager said, the problem with the two-state solution ‘is one side wants the other side dead.’

Yet foolish Biblically brain-dead politicians have steadfastly refused to acknowledge that simple fact since the 1967 war united Jerusalem forever.

The prophet Ezekiel 36:5 had this to say about those who would covet Jacob’s land:

“This is what the Sovereign Lord says: In my burning zeal I have spoken against the rest of the nations, and against all Edom, for with glee and with malice in their hearts they made my land their own possession so that they might plunder its pastureland.”

Edom did that in the 6th century BC, as recorded in Obadiah 1:1-18 when the descendants of Esau moved from Mt. Seir to Judea (West Bank) where they still reside today.

In one of the most astounding prophecies, Ezekiel is commanded to speak to dry bones:  “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the LordThus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live” (Ez. 38:5).

  • Ez. 37:6  I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord 
  • Ez. 37:7 As I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone
  • Ex. 37:8 As I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them
  • Ez. 37:9 “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says the Lord God, ‘breathe on these slain, that they may live’
  • Ez: 37:10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.

The great army is followed by Ezekiel 38, in which Russia, Iran and Turkey, along with enemies from North Africa will attack Israel while she is living in a false peace (Ez. 38:12).
